What Cornell University says about Green Bedding


Using manure solids can provide an economic benefit without adversely affecting heard health.

Bacterial levels in the bedding alone are not what cause high SCC or mastitis. Management of the bedding in the stalls (cubicles) is much more important than analysing it for pathogens. Keeping stalls free of manure and urine, regardless of bedding type, will go a long way toward keeping SSC and mastitis under control.

Use a DMS system that fits into your farm's routine and one with which you are most comfortable.
